“I had a lot of fun today, I woke up so excited. I am just so grateful for the opportunity,” said Wie. “I got a lot of goose bumps walking up to 18. I can’t believe this is happening.”
Wie, who eagled the tenth and birdied the 17th to give her a two-stroke cushion over Lewis,ranks second in greens in regulation on the LPGA Tour with her VR Pro Blade irons. She is fourth in putts per greens in regulation, playing with an adjusted Method 006 putter this week featuring Polymetal Groove technology, which helps to reduce skid and produce a truer roll.
Wie’s Nike RZN Black ball features innovative Speedlock RZN technology, designed to deliver more distance, better feel and a more consistent, stable ball flight into the wind. The win gives Wie eight top-ten finishes this season, moving her from 11th to a projected seventh in the World Rankings.
